WORLD: Act like you would in a Crisis 


About the Webinar

SUSTAINABILITY – RESOURCES, WATER, ENERGY, BRAND

“The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line”. Greta Thunberg

We need to create future work that adds value and manufactures complex things in a sustainable way. Young people care about the environment like no generation has before. Australia does not need or want to compete with the high pollution low cost manufacturing mass produced factories. We are looking to solar, hydrogen and nuclear as energy options.

Environmental concerns need to be at the forefront of our thinking in building this new economy.

We need to invent the technologies that allow – preservation of the resources of the planet like water. The next generation want to drive EV’s, so why shouldn’t Australia build them locally rather than import them?

Australia needs to support businesses so they can scale up to become global powerhouses, it needs a public/private partnership that competes on quality not price – taking Germany and Japan as examples – they are not the cheapest countries but people buy as they have superior products. How much should we be focused on R&D?
